Trend Alert: How to Use Millennial Pink in Your Email Design

Millennial pink is everywhere lately. From berry-flavored LaCroix to Nike’s latest collection to Instagram everything, the pale blush color seems to be here to stay, and that means we’re seeing an influx of millennial pink email in our inbox. It all started when Pantone called rose quartz the 2016 color of the year. Now, the color is ubiquitous. But that’s not a bad thing. Millennial pink has staying power for a reason: it’s fresh, friendly, and just plain pretty. Plus, there isn’t just one “right” millennial pink to choose from. The colors range from peachy to deeper rose tones—here’s an example color palette we put together with coolers.com:
